Ian Somerhalder

Born December 8, 1978 in Covington, Louisiana (Sagittarius hehe).

His father, Robert Somerhalder, was a building contractor of French and English descent, and his mother, Edna, who is of Irish and Choctaw descent, was a massage therapist and grew up on a farm in Mississippi.

Boating, swimming, fishing and training horses filled much of his recreational time growing up, as did the school drama club and performing with the local theater group.

At age of 10, his mother encouraged him to begin a modelling career that took him to New York each summer. He modeled for Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabanna, Gucci, Versace and Guess... but he doesn't like to talk about his modeling career because of the impressions people might get of him as being just another pretty face.

He has a brother and a sister and his parents divorced when he was thirteen.

A talent manager visiting a client on the set spotted Somerhalder in a crowd scene of 400 and immediately signed him for representation.

In 2005, he bulked up, adding about 20 to 30 pounds of muscle to his slim frame, so he would be considered for more leading-man-type roles.

The surname "Somerhalder" originates from his adoptive great-grandfather. His biological great-grandfather, a wealthy English landowner, got one of his mistresses pregnant and paid an immigrant worker of his to marry this woman and give the baby a name, which was Somerhalder. The biological great-grandfather's name was Hull.

Certainly you do remember him from "Lost" where he played Boone Carlyle but I think that his part as Damon Salvatore, the "bad" brother in Vampire Diaries made him really recognizable all over the world. *sigh*
